Introduction to the Science of Hadith

In this 4-part series, we go over a basic overview of the science of hadith. The first part discusses basic definitions and a brief history of the compilation of hadith. The second part discusses the subject of ‘Ilm al-Rijal, verifying and establishing the reliability of the transmitters of narrations. The third part discusses the subject of ‘Ilm al-Dirayah and followed by an introduction to Fiqh al-Hadith. The fourth part goes over three basic case-studies in which we elaborate on how Fiqh a-Hadith comes into play in understanding and interpreting narrations.
